July infringements of EU air quality law

The European Commission recently announced decisions it had made in its July Infringements package. In the area of air quality, the Commission is calling on Finland (INFR(2022)2029) and Ireland (INFR(2022)2053) to bring national legislation fully in line with EU law on air quality with regards to sampling points, data quality objectives and providing public information. Finland and Ireland have two months to respond and address the shortcomings raised by the Commission.
